A local superhero has vowed to not rest until he has brought a serial killer to justice.
The masked vigilante, known as ShadowVision, has been protecting the people of Little Rock, Arkansas, for almost a decade.
Armed with a steel helmet, fanged arm guards, shoulder pads and hand cuffs, he claims to have stopped two armed robberies and 'exterminated' two murderers.
His latest target is the 'Little Rock slasher', who has been blamed for four stabbings, three of which resulted in deaths, in the area.
Writing on his Facebook page, Shadow said: "I know that the serial stabber is keeping a eye on my page here, so this is a threat to you when I find you I will show you what I do to serial killers.
"I am hunting you right now."
In a later comment, he added: "I am only here to help. The people need someone to bring them hope. I fight for the people.
"I will show this killer what I do to serial killers when I find him."
ShadowVision reportedly originates from Scotland, and moved to Arkansas to help protect people.
He told the Arkansas Times: "I heard everybody here was losing hope, so I decided to head out here and start helping."
One thing that is holding him back at the moment, though, is his inability to travel quickly.
With no kind of vehicle at his disposal, his old car was allegedly 'shot up' in the line of duty, Shadow's crime fighting is limited to chasing criminals down on foot - and racking up 80 miles a week, he says it helps him keep fit.
But he is in the market for a motor, 'a Scion xD... they are agile and can take turns at high speed', according to his Facebook page.
However, it's not about the money for him. He said: "I really do not want any reward.
"I want him off the streets. One way or another, he will be."
Last month, Little Rock Police Chief Keith Humphrey issued a 'safety alert' in response to the spate of random stabbings in the city.
He also offered a $20,000 reward for information that would lead to a conclusion to the sinister case.
The victims of the attacks were Larry McChristian, 64, whose body was found last August, Jeff Welch, 62, who was discovered last September, and an unidentified man known as 'Old School', who was found on 12 April.
Another, unidentified, man survived his attack on 11 April.
